Irvington started out as a streetcar suburb in the 1890s and by the 1920s had become one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Portland. The Irvington National Register Historic District includes over 2500 homes, most of them are considered contributing to the district. On this tour we will see only a small slice of the larger area, but included will be some of the finest examples of design by several important early 20th century architects, including high-style Arts and Crafts and Colonial Revivals.

Like many 100 year old neighborhoods, Irvington has seen periods of prosperity and decline. On this tour we'll see how historic preservation and “pride of ownership” have combined in Irvington to create a highly visible example of urban revitalization in Portland.

This tour covers less than two miles on mostly level city streets and lasts about 1 ½ hours. Easy walk.

All events being promptly at time indicated in posting.


Cost: $10.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
